Where to Find Barley Location in Valheim?

You must head to the Plains biome which is where you will find Barley around Fuling camps. Fulings are goblin-like creatures that are hostile and quite dangerous in groups. Once you have collected Barley, you can turn it into Barley flour which can be used to craft multiple things like Blood Pudding, Bread, Fish Wraps and Lox Meat pie. Barley is also a requirement to tame a Lox and they are tough creatures to tame.

So, how do you convert Barley to Barley flour? You need the Windmill which can be made with the help of the Artisans Table. You need to have defeated the Moder boss for that so here’s how to summon and beat Moder if you haven’t done it already. Apart from that, you can use the Cultivator to plant and grow Barley easily.
